Abstract: The present work reports for the first time the occurrence of Alopecosa psammophila (Araneae: Lycosidae) in Romania. It was identified in the autumn of 2013 in 2 habitats located in northwestern Romania, at a Natura 2000 site. Both habitats are represented by open and dry sandy grasslands. Comparison of standard body measurements showed that males have longer legs than females, but the total body length of females is greater than that of males.
